Over the years at Canna Companion we have consulted with many pet parents assisting them in determining which of our products would be most beneficial for their animal companions. While we have provided support for many different species, our focus has primarily been on cats and dogs, up to this point. That is all about to change as we get ready to release our newest product, a paste specifically designed to meet equine needs.
This product can be used for calming; ligament, tendon, and joint health; gastrointestinal support; immune support; and neurological health support. In this, it is similar to our other products. However, this paste is formulated specifically with the needs of the horse in mind. It will come packaged in a dial-a-tube which dispenses, pre-measured 1 gram per turn. The standard dosing recommendation would be one gram per 1,000 lb every 8 to 12 hours by mouth or in food.
While the endocannabinoid system of equines is no different from any other species, they have other needs that are vastly different from cats and dogs. As a result of the equine essential fatty acid needs, we have chosen to use flaxseed oil in this mix. In addition, efficient equine hindgut fermentation means we need to slow absorption. This is also been taken into account in the formulation by using a blend of alfalfa, barley, beet, and oat powders.
As the launch date for this product approaches, we look forward to sharing more details with you. Please keep an eye on our social media pages and our website for additional information. We are currently aiming to release this product in late fall 2019.
